|ERIC ED318322: Communication in an Era of Specialization. - ERIC|
It is proposed that, contrary to traditional thinking, interdisciplinary communication can be enhanced, not limited, by specialization. A thorough understanding of common elements within any one discipline provides the bridge between disciplines. Two sets of examples of issues are examined. The first focuses on three disciplines in the social sciences (cognitive science, sociobiology, and behaviorism), and suggests that theories in these disciplines share common ground in terms of providing mech...

|ERIC ED383947: On a Certain Emotional Blindness in Human Beings. - ERIC|
While human emotions are often considered instinctive, this paper examines the notion that indifference to events or circumstances which might seem to have a prima facie claim to emotional significance is related to the narrative construction of those events or circumstances in the life of the observer, and is not a result of absolute stimulus value or of inner biological events. Also, indifference is selective in the same person...

|ERIC ED290785: Toward Valid Measurement of Stephen Pepper's World Hypotheses. - ERIC|
Two measures of the "world hypotheses" of Stephen Pepper were mailed to 100 sociobiologists, 87 behaviorists, 79 personality psychologists, and 45 human developmentalists. The World Hypothesis Scale (WHS) was designed to measure Pepper's four world views: (1) formism; (2) mechanism; (3) organicism; and (4) contextualism. The Organicism-Mechanism Paradigm Inventory (OMPI) was designed to cover philosophical and practical areas...

|ERIC ED265650: Applying the Sociobiological Synthesis to Education. - ERIC|
This paper argues that the emerging discipline of sociobiology has the potential of doing what epistemologists, developmental psychologists, psychoanalysts, and ethologists have been unable to do: to provide a theory documenting our inherited dispositions as reflected in cultural evolution and personal development. Accordingly, the paper begins with a summary of the basic concepts of sociobiology, and then shows how these concepts are compatible with a number of theories already applied in educa...

|MIT 9.20 Animal Behavior, Fall 2005|
Instructor: Gerald Schneider Most of the major categories of adaptive behavior can be seen in all animals. This course begins with the evolution of behavior, the driver of nervous system evolution, reviewed using concepts developed in ethology, sociobiology, other comparative studies, and in studies of brain evolution. The roles of various types of plasticity are considered, as well as foraging and feeding, defensive and aggressive behavior, courtship and reproduction, migration and navigation, ...

|The pseudoscience of reductionism and the problem of mind - Morten Tolboll|
The reductionisms observe Man from fragmented viewpoints, for example as organism, as physical-chemical system, as society being, as psyche, as producer and user of language and meaning. But what becomes of the wholeness? What unites all this knowledge to a total image of Man? The reductionisms´ explanations of this always end up as philosophical shipwrecks. Reductionisms are philosophical viewpoints, which under cover of being science seek to answer the question of Man, or reality as such...
